whats your point?
Audi and volkswagon are the same thing...
GMC and chevy are the same thing
GM is chev
GM is GMC (plus others)
Diamler is chrysler
Mercedes is chrysler
Diamler is chrysler
see all a vicious circle

Theres no change for chrysler, even if there putting V8s in the 300, I have never seen yet a chrylser transmission in any vehicle chrysler make hold up for long. So if chrysler tried to go up against gm there trannies gears will be flying all over the place. I know from experiance about chrysler trannies.

Jeep and eagle are also under Daimler chryslers umbrella. I thought Rolls Royce was sold by VW and BMW bought it? Mercededs has Maybach now, and VW got Bugatti.
